Closing the Bones

I must admit I really love this postnatal ritual and if you haven’t heard of Closing the Bones before, allow me to tell you a little about it.  Closing the Bones is ancient wisdom, the kind that passes down through generations of women, the kind that offers nurturing and understanding and kindness to a new mother, the kind that offers an opportunity for women to be nurtured by someone who understands and to help her begin to heal after birth. 

In essence the process itself combines the gentle, soothing motion of rebozo or manteada with a slow, hands-on massage of the hips, belly and pelvis and culminating in a wonderful wrapping of the bones, a closing together and a time to reflect on the birth and to mark this moment in a woman’s life. There is much more information about this practice on this website and if I’m not within reach you can look up your nearest practitioner there too.
